RanL'i Predicts an Immense
Will the citizens at large have to pay for
the Douglas avenue asphalt pavement ?
That is a question over which there is a
good detl of discussion just at present.
Some people coutend that the city will
have to pay for the pavement while a good
many more indignantly scout the idea.
The question hi now being tested ia the
distiict court and the result will be known
ia a few days.
The case of Oscar Barnes against John
Doran commenced yesterday nnd
the court room was crowded
with couucilmen, city officers, citizens
who own property on Douglas avenue and
attorneys. The case is the firt of a series
of similar cases brought by Douglas ave
nue property uolders enjoining the county
treasurer from collecting taxes assessed
against property abutting on Douglas ave
nue, on account of asphaltum paving, for
the reason that the proceedings in letting
the contract for said paving were irregular
and not nccoiding to law.
Judge Wali appealed for Barnes and x.
J. Myatt appealed for the city. Judge
Wall insisted that the petition ask
ing for the paving of Doug
las avenue with asphalt was
uotsigaed by those representing a major
ity of the frontage of said Douglas ave
nue, and produced some fifteen or twenty
affidavits to prove his position.
M. P. Barnes inkde affidavit that he
never signed any petition to pave Douglas
avenue and never signed the one presented
to and acted on by the city council. That
he never authorizsd anybody to sign it for,
John Herrig made affidavit that he is
the identical person who sigued a certain
petitiou for the paviug of Douglas avenue;
that subsequently he asked O. Z. Smith to
erase his name. He also stated that while
hesigntd the petition as the owner of cer
tain property in March lie did uot own it.
That his wife, Betty- Herrig, owned the
property at the time and did not authorize
him to sign it.
Lewis Bitting made affidavit that he
owned the fifty feet of ground on Douglas
avenue and did not sign the petitiou for
pavement and did not authorise anybody
to sigu it for him. That he is the only
Lewis Bitting that owns any property in
Chester Firebaugh made affidavit that
since January 1, 1803, he has not been the
owner of record of any real estate fronting
on Douglas avenue.
John Exton made affidavit that ho vas
not the owner ot lots SI and 83 on Douglas
avenue when he signed a petition asking
the mayor aud council to pave Douglas
J. A. Wallace made affidavit that ho is
the same J. A. Wallace thatsigned the pe
tition asking the mayor aud council to
pave Douglas avenue and that he did not
then or prior thereto during the said year
1S03 own 7o feet fronting on Douglas ave
nue as stated in the petition.
A. C. Niederlander made affidavit that
he is not now, nor was he at the time he
signed the petition, the owner of any
property on Douglas avenue within the
O. H. Beutley made affidavit that he
has not been at any time during thu year
lb03, the owner of auy real estate flouting
upon Douglas avenue, etc.
The first affidavit read was that of ex
Seu.itor O. H. Bentley, who was one of
the signers of the petition, and was also
one ot the men who went before the couu
cil hut March, and, in a speech of some
length, advocated, urged and de
manded the paviug of Doug
las avenue with asphaltum. In
his affidavit he admits that at the time of
signing the petition ho did not own the
Bentley property on Douglas'avenue.
Tliis affidavit caused astonishment
amoug the couucilmen aud other city of
ficers present who remembeied the part
Mr. Bentley took in the paving question
last spiing. Judge Wall has also other
grounds to sustain his position, such as
an absence from the minutes of the coun
cil of the necessary resolution deeming it
necessary by the council to pave
Douglas avenue. Mr. Myatt is re
sisting the suit with all his inight
and is confident that he will
paralize the injunction. Judye Wall is
equally confident of gaining his point and
appearances seamed to indicate last night
that he had the best end of the case. lie
says that it he can't beat the city on this
point that he has soma more strings to
pull that he will get it on.
Major Cox says that he has given the
suljtct of contention a good deal of
thought and he seems to bo positive that
the city will win the case.
Councilman Johnson thinks that the
city ought to win the case, but ssems to
doubtful about it. He said tbat the
council took every precaution to
have matters regular in connection
with the letting of the contracr. but that
they did not deem it neces-ary to run
around aud find out whether a man
owned the property which he signed for
or not. He said that the conucil took it
for granted that when a mau signed the
petitiou that he did it in good faith.
Councilman Caswell didn't know what
to think of the matter, lie was so much
astonished when he heard the reading of
the affidavits, especially the affidavit of O.
Councilman Horner was, like Caswell,
very much astouished, but seemed to be
confident that the city would win the case.
The case was the talk of the town last
night. It will be continued in the district
court this morning.
ADJUTIEO TO -JHU UAK.
Immediately after Judge Williams had
takeu his seat in the court room yesterday
afternoon, Mr. "John Hume arose aud in a
rery eloquent and most graceful mauuer
pretaced a motion to adnm Luther Burns
to practice in the district and circuit courts
of the United States.
Mr. Hume spoke with more than usual
feeling of the many good qualities of Mr.
Burns, because he bad for a long time
been a studeut and attorney in the law
office of Stanley .5c Hume, and he was
thus in a position to testify to his up
right character, his bright intellect, his
generous heart and his genial disposition.
It doesn't fall to the lot of every young
mm to be brought mto close relationship
with such a body of intelligent gentlemen
ts he met yesterday, and his young heart
must have swelled with pride as he took
he oath frim Frank Suerman and was
i-ougmt ul.ited by the venerable Judge
Williams. A year ago Luther wm? ad
mitted to practice in the district court of
he state, and now he is at ths bar where
he mirt distinguished attorneys of the
land do not disdain to appear.
Mr. C. Madseu, deputy Uuited States
marshal ot Oklahoma, is in the city at
tending United States court.
STOP THIEF! STOP THIEF!!
Coioner ilcCoIlister Has an Exciting
After a Sneak Thief.
"What's the matxerS'"
"Stop that man!"
The first exclamation proceeded from
Johu D. Davis, who had plenty of wind to
hurl the words out as fast as it was neces
sary. The second came from Coroner
McCollister who only had breath
enough left to repeat the words and they
fell off his tongue to the sidewalk, not an
arm's length in advance.
At S o'clock last night the coroner came
down town to attend the installation of
the officers of the Sons of Veterans, like a
true soldier tbat he was, and thinking the
meeting was in the hall on Market street,
came down Main street as far as the alley
between Douglas avenue aud Fisrt street.
Along in front of Cash Henderson's a
young man stopped Mac aud begged the
loan of a qu-irter to get a square meal.
Mac, not being a millionaire, aud having
gone out of the loan business, didn't put
up. He told the man that he ought not to
be huugry, being strong tand hearty and
having one more arm than he had, all of
which was very true, but that did't relieve
the gnawing appetite.
The two friends of a few moments
parted, Mic continuing on south and the
other goitig north. Meeting John Davis
at the allay they stopped to pass a word
with each other, and Mac learned that it
was Garfield hall he was seeking, so he
retraced his steps. II Mcnim: the Santa Fe
bakery Mac spied his impecunious friend,
with another of the same -suit, coming
down the street with a new pair of boots.
With a detective's scent as keen as a
sleuth hound, Mao accosted him:
"Ah, there, where did you get those
The young man's attention was riveted !
on something across the street, and once
more the coroner called in a sonorous
"Where d'you get those boots? "
That fetched him. He gave one glance
at his interlocutor, dropped his "pick-np"
and sped down the street at a gait that
would have filled Nancy Hank's eyes with
dust. Julius Ceasars' chost, how the man
flew, and Mac Just behind him, throwing
his one arm in the air like a one-armed
When th6 fellow dropped the boots Mac
grabbed for him, but he "missed hi call
ing" and struck a telephone pole, nearly
rending it. When the thief reached the
alley where the coroner had stood two or
three minutes before in full possession of
alibis faculties, and where he-now stood
au'ain bereft ot all them on account of his
race, he turned east aud was soon out of
tight. It was here that Mac was accosted
with "what in Sam Hill is the matter!"
"Matterl Didn't you see that thief turn
down this alley."
"Thief, wnere! Who was it?''
"How do I know who he is. He stole a
a pair of boots."
"Where ore the boots?"
In Mac's burning desire to catch his
former friend he had forgotten the booty,
and failing to capture the thief he went
back to capture the boots.
They were stoleu from the city shoe
store and were returned.
IN Tllli COUK'IS.
The United Stales court convened at 10
o'clock yesterday morning and Judge
Williams called the roll of attorneys for
motions. After the roll call court
adjourned till 2 o'clock p. m.
Wbeu court convened the case of the
United States vs. O. P. Overturf, charged
with selling liquor without license. He
was convicted aud fiued $10 aud costs.
The ease of Henry McDaniel, charged
with perjury, was called. O. H. Beutly
appeared for the defendant, aud Morris
Cliggitt, assistant United States attorney,
represented the government. The case
was not liuished when court adjourned
till 10 o'clock this morning.
McDaniel is a colored man who has
lived in the city for years. A year or two
ago one Patsy Smith, a colored wo
man, applied for a pension, and the defen
dant in this case was one of her witnesses.
Patsy had been known to the colored peo
ple of this cit y as a widow whose deceased
husband had been a Union soldier. But
time and other thiusis developed the fact
that Patsy was again wearing the matri
monial yoke, was ouce more bound hand
nnd foot in the marital bonds, aud she
now languishes in the penitentiary as the
result of her earnest efforts to secure a
pension by swearing that she was still a
widow at the time she made her- applica
tion. When McDaniel made his state
ment it was not that she was married.
Whether this fact will clear him or not it
is not known.
United States District Attorney Perry
ai rived yesterday mottling and will prose

likely to be called tomorrow morning.

Causes a Sensation.
The scenes aronnd the Carey hotel last
night were very much like those ona seed
around a political hotel during a cam
paign. There are distinguished politi
cians present from all over the state. They
are here as lawyers, however, and not as
politicians; but for all that a good deal of
political medicine is being made on the
side. The fact is, some prominent candi
dates for office have agents here who are
openly working for them. The opening ol
the United States court always brings a
good many of the leading lawyers of the
state to Wichita, and consequently a good
many prominent politicians; and for this
reason the field is a good one for the agents
of political booms.
One of the prominent figures the eye
encounters in the betel office is Colonel
Dick Morris the internal revenue collector
for Kansas. With the possible exception
of Colonel James Garvey he is the hand
omest visitor at the hotel. He is dressed
aultlessly and goes around from group to
group with a stride that is positively
princely. The odor of his highly fiavored
cigars permeates the surroundings and a
single smell of the smoke is better than
smoking an entire average 10 center.
Colonel Morris makes no bones about
expressing hia distaste for fusion and he is
nut anxious to see another Popoulisc gov
ernor in charge of aft'airj.
u heu asked who he favored for gov
ernor he replied that Kansas had a good
deal of Democratic material for the position
but he thought the nomination would go
to cither Judge Humphrey of Junction
City, Dave Overmyer of Topeka, or ex
Chairman William C. Jones, the defeated
candidate for marshal. From the tenor
ef his remarks a conclusion could be
drawn that his personal preference would
De for Jones, but that Humphrey would
make a better race. One of the quiet,
dignified attorneys who observes a good
deal but says very little, is Hon. D. A,
Banta of Great Bend. Mr. Banta was the
resubmission Republican nominee for
lieutenant governor three years ago and
made a good race. He is a firm believer
in the success of the Republican
party next fall and is inclined to think
tbat the easiest way to assure
success is to nominate a man
that can reach the hearts of the great lib
eral mass of the Republican party. With
such a man he thiuks Kansas will give a
Republican majority of 30,000 votes.
Hon. Chester I. Long is mixing a good
deal and it is vry noticeable that those
whom be is mixing most with are gentle
me"n who live in tne Seventh congressional
district. To the query, "Are you a candi
date again?" he smiles and evades answer
ing directly. It looks, however, judging
from his actions, that his lightning rod
Senator Rush of Ltrnad is doing a good
deal of mixing and is very much sought
Hon. Johu Eaton of Winfield is
among the many visitors, but as
Mr. Eaton hardly knows whether he
is a Democrat or a Populist, he
is not taking much interest in the political
pins that are being set up.
Colonel Dick Walker is always surround
ed by from a dozen to a score of lesser
lights aud they are smokiug good cigars.
There are moia people inquiring for him
than auy other visitor at the hotel, aud not
because ho is United States marshal either.
His brother George aud Leon DeBost are
looking after the official business princi
pally, at least the details of it.
United States District Attorney Perry
spends his leisure hours watching other
fellows play billiards, and his ouly com
pany last night, when every one else of his
calibre was busy, was a hichly fiavored
cigar. Mr. Perry never gets enthusiastic
or excited. His political methods run like
deep water smooth.
Bat Couuor of St. Joe mixed with the
crowd a good deal. He has no vote in
Kansas, but it is said of him that while
traveling about in his quiet way he can
inako more votes for a friend than the
best orator in the state. Ho is a Demo
crat, but helps his friends.
Hon. D. A. Harvey of Oklahoma is also
among the attorneya attending court and
stopping at the Carey. Mr. Harvey says
it is treason to talk about anything in his
city but single statehood. He does not
think, however, that statehood of any kind
is near at baud.
Colonel William P. Hacknev of Win
field came up last night aud remained
until bed-time the center of quite a group
of attorneys and politicians.
Hon. Sam Peters of Newton arrived
yesterday and he was not in town five
minutes wheu some one started a guberna
torial boom in his favor.

Garfield hall was resplendent with glory
last night, the glory of the ex-soldier ele

After the installation Lieutenant Huff

loudly called for and responded Sa a very

absence of the officers of the post aud the
presence of so few ot the veterans.
Misses "Maude and Ida, daughters of
Mike Ragau, a prominent Grand Army
man of Sedgwick City, came down to at

After supper Captain Carvin was called
to the center of the hall and Past Captain

Then the hall was cleared and a dance
was inaugurated which lasted till midnight.
A round bakers' dozen of alcohol fiends
were arrested last night and thrown into
the jug. Among tramps they are known
as "white lime"' men. Their title is de
rived from the kind of liquor they drink,
which is ulcohol. This wneu diluted with
water becomes white like lime water,
hence they are called "white lime" men.
They are the woist specie of tramps known
to the police. They are utterly depraved
from the use of alcohol, and nothing is
too disreputable for them to do. They
will steal, beg or sandbag to get money
to buy alcohol, and are dangerous
chaps to have hangiug around. They
travel in gangs of about ten or a dozen
and this is another reasou why they are
dangerous. Tfceir normal condition is
drunk, aud they not only fight among
themselves, but attack peaceful citizens

less there are enough policeman present to
overawe them. They are generally
brought in from the suburbs in the hood
lum wagon. The proper treatment for
"white lime" men is close confinement on
bread aud water or else plenty of work ou
the rock pile. They are tramps that are
not entitled to any compassion, for they
are vagabonds by choice.

Sonic Knotty law Questions Involved in tlia
Jndga Reed has not yer. given his decis
ion in the Whittaker case. The court
spent two days hearing the attachment
aud interveniug petitions in the case, the
title of which is Johu Whittaker against
Michael McEunis. The case involves the
Whether there was a partnership be
tween Whittaker and McEunis. If so,
the right of the court to appoint a receiver
and equitably distribute the assets.
There is a large amount involved and
the case was hotly contested by Messrs.
Hume and Holmes for the receiver and
Whittaker and Messrs. Bently & Fergu
son aud Robertson for the attaching credi
tors. It was contended ou the part of
Messrs. Hume and Holmes that an insol
vent partnership can be placed in the
hands of a receiver and the assets distrib
uted. The contention of the attorneys for
the creditors was that such actions would
be in violation of the general assignment
MUSI0 AND DRAMA.
An attraction of which much has been
heard is Morrison's famous production of
"Faust". Tnis will be seen at Crawford's
Grand, Jan. 12 and KJ, matinee 13. The
presentation is notable, aside from the ex
cellence of the confpauy, for its employ
nieut of a series of stage effects. Electri
city come into play throughout the pro
duction. A cross startling into light by
the church wall dauius thu fiend amidst
the loudest boastinga. Flowers leap into
glowing blossoms in the scene where Mar
guerite trives herself to her lover. But it
is in the Brockcn scene that the acme of
"light effects" is attained. Fiery dragons
pass through the air, leaving a train of
sparks behind, and a veritable cataract of
fire descends at the close between the uu-
ennny people of the Sabbat and their illu
milled cheif ou the mountain peak above,
''"no Morrison dramatization of Goethe's
legend is ascribed to Mr. Bayle Bernard of
Loudon, aud follows the original more
closely than other versions which have
been seen. The compauy is caretully se
lected aud the engagement will undoubl
edly prove very large and profitable.

It is refreshing tosea nesro minstrel
show, composed cf real negroes and real
minstrels, S . A. Mahara's mamo'.h col
ored troupe gave a performance last night
that filled tbe bill completely. They were
not imitation darkle and their fun not
strained. .Neither, strange as it may seem,
were they poor musicians or bungling per
formers. The show was a clever one from
beginning to end no chestnuts, no hum
bug, but bright and crisp and enjoyable
throughout. At thi risk of shocking the
conservative opinion of Montgomery, w
maKe bold to say that V. A. .Mahara's
mammoth minstrels are everything that
gois to constitute negro minstrel. Moat-1
goniery (.Ata. implicit.

a bard part to carry. The better his actiujr
